It featured numerous freighter and spacebarge hangars, and living quarters for its dock personnel. It provided repair bays for capital ships up to 600 meters in length, with bays for other smaller vessels.


An Orbital Space Dock III was constructed and placed in orbit over the planet of Bacrana by the Imperial Navy.
